Cedarburg- 2014

Cedarburg Sunday

Taking advantage of the beautiful weather, nine people met at the Lake Forest Oasis at 9:30 AM on Sunday, Oct. 26. Four little 'birds and one new 'bird caravanned to Cedarburg, WI. After parking in a nice big lot adjacent to very clean public restrooms, we visited some shops while waiting for others to open. The town was pretty deserted and we had many of the shops to ourselves. Eventually the ladies rejoined the men and we all headed to Morton's Wisconsinn. Many of us ordered the famous Bloody Mary and some had the French Onion Soup. We all enjoyed our meals and several kept an eye on the disastrous Bear's game. Following lunch and the "group photo", we visited a few more shops and then headed for the cars and the trip home. Thank you to Len and Mary Keil for planning and leading this fun last-minute day-trip. Also participating were Sue Wenderski and her sister, Carla Dusa, Debbie Powless, Tom and Judy Bruin and Liz and Bill Werth.

Crandall's and more

Sunday, October 12 was a beautiful day for a drive. Thirty-one members met at Crandall's to enjoy a delicious buffet. Bob Hoge, the day's planner, filled us in on the schedule for the day. After our brunch, we caravanned to Richmond. At the four-way stop in Hebron, a local policeman stopped all traffic so that we could glide through the intersection without difficulty. In Richmond, the group split up and explored the shops, ate ice cream and fudge or sat on the small town square. The caravan to the Eddie Cash Music Hall in Genoa City, WI started out with the help of Bob Sroka who stopped traffic so that we could all get through a stop sign. Once at the Music Hall, some availed themselves of the caramel popcorn samples and others ordered Spotted Cow beer or some wine. Once in the theater, we were treated to two hours of wonderfully nostalgic music and stories about how Eddie met many performers. During the intermission, several of us spoke with Mr. Cash about a possible CTCC outing to the Music Hall. It was a great day and we thank Bob and Helen Hoge for planning it. Taking part in all or some of the activities were: Bob & Helen Hoge, Ken & Kathy Smizinski, Joel Greenberg & Annie Luginbill, Gordon Gluff & Mary Ziemba, Lee & Gina Bakakos, Gail Hascek, Mike & Laura Cielenski, Bob & Barb Sroka, Doug Rogers, Tom Bruin, Pete & Lisa Ekstrom, new members Tom & Joanne Jacobi, Dan Mrozek & Arlene Figlia, Dan & Karen Anderson, Andy & Kathy Rominiecki, Len & Mary Keil and Bill & Liz Werth.
